Tunis Sheep

  Tunis Sheep Breeders

 

The Tunis sheep originated from Tunisia in North Africa and was imported into the US in 1799. The breed was popular in the south until almost eliminated during the Civil War. The Tunis is medium sized with a red or tan face and legs, pendulous ears, no wool on the head and legs, polled and a medium sized fat tail. They are fairly prolific, good milkers and mother and produce a medium wool fleece.
